Featured Photographer: William Patino

9 April 2014

I live on the South Coast of NSW Australia in the city of Wollongong. I first picked up a camera in 2012 and I haven’t viewed the world the same way since. Looking at life through a lens has really opened up my eyes and mind to the vast, intricate beauty of the world we live in. Through photography I have developed a deep appreciation for nature and learned to understand and admire life’s simplicity.

Each and every day a different picture is painted upon this canvas of life. I want to be there to capture and experience the magical, once in a lifetime moments. From the big vibrant colours of a coastal sunrise or something as simple as fresh water flowing through the forest, there are unlimited opportunities to see and experience.

Photography really feels like an extension of who I am. I love being one with the environment and exploring new locations. Photography for me isn’t so much about the images but more the moments that surround them. It is a true blessing to be able to capture unforgettable scenes and express myself through this art.
